    your battery in the laptop when it's plugged and the battery always stay full at 100%. So, since I rarely need the battery, I was removing it and put it back in like every month or so. Now, I just bought a new laptop and...you can't remove the battery unless you dismantle the laptop Acer Aspire 3 A315-21-4808

    Correct. The way things are progressing, batteries are no longer hard structures encased in plastic that snap in and out. Currently, batteries are being made in odd shapes to fit in odd spaces within the laptops. They now have a more fragile structure to make them more flexible, in a sense. Due to this, they are more hazardous to handle and manufacturers have started to integrate them into the design rather than make them accessible for removal.

    The up-side is battery tech has also greatly improved in the last few years. More charge cycles, less degradation, more idle/shelf life, and greater life span. In essence, you no longer need to remove the batteries to protect them from over-cycling or heat degradation. Batteries today are more robust than even 3-5 years ago.

    The cynic in me says that the driving force behind this is less of safety concerns and more of planned obsolescence.
